Derby & Derbyshire Minerals Core Strategy: Key Issues & Options Part Two: Vision, Objectives, Issues & Options Chapter 7: Major Issues & Options Objective A: Ensuring Sufficient Provision of Minerals How should we calculate the provision for aggregates beyond 2020? how we should calculate the provision for aggregates beyond 2020

It proposes that post 2020, any such further reduction in the Peal Park's sub-regional obligation should be shared with other neighbouring Authorities rather than accepted by Derbyshire. This aspiration must be tempered with the reality that the ability and capacity of those regions, particularly the North West, to accept a larger share of the burden is limited without the grant of new permissions, possibly including the need for one or more new green field quarry development, assuming one coul

a) Tarmac over recent years has consistently made representations for its proposed allocation of sand & gravel sites. These are included again in response to Issue 20: Site Suggestions. This has taken the form of the current planning application for extension to the Elvaston site together with a further extension to the site as a proposed site allocation. As a general comment the matter of extensions to existing sites versus new sites is one for the mineral planning authority to consider on a

it is a given that the landbank will decline with the passage of time if no new permissions are granted. However, Tarmac would be concerned that such a restrictive policy might result in otherwise environmentally worthwhile proposals being lost, leading to the loss of nationally important and sustainably accessible resources. Accordingly Tarmac acknowledges the potential value of the proposal for the release of additional reserves at specific sites in exchange for the revocation of consent

Vision 3 indicates that, by 2030, Derbyshire will have sought to assist in "achieving a progressive reduction of minerals won in the Peak District National Park" and Vision 7 states that "There will have been a reduction in the excessive landbank of permitted reserves of crushed rock in Derbyshire". Objectives C and G review methods of delivering this vision. Whilst it is entirely legitimate for the Authority to propose/pursue the vision set out, Tarmac does not feel it is legitimate to claim

a) This is a matter for the Regional Aggregate Working Party to advise on. The circumstances at the time should not be pre-empted. In any event, the Core Strategy will presumably be subject to rolling review during the Plan Period, at which point(s), the up to date situation can be reflected. Accordingly, Option 1 is the more appropriate at this stage. b) If such a policy was pursued it would put more emphasis on the need to protect existing crushed rock reserves outside the Peak Park - i.e.

The progressive reduction of mineral working in the Peak District National Park by the transfer to Derbyshire of a proportion of the sub-regional apportionment (as has been agreed in the recent review by the East Midlands RAWP), will inevitably result in a reduction on the Derbyshire landbank, albeit not a significant one. However, if the principle is repeated in future reviews, the effect on Derbyshire's landbank will be cumulative and will accelerate. It will also tend to increase the envir
